The next Paper Appreciation Course will now take place at The Paper Trail, Frogmore Paper Mill, Fourdrinier Way, Apsley, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP3 9RY on Wednesday 8th September 2021.
Bookings for places on this course will now be accepted.
This course will be very strictly limited to only 12 delegates and will comply to all social-distancing and Covid-19 provisions if any are still in place following the proposed end-of-lockdown on 19th July 2021.
This is a great opportunity to see a working paper-making machine in the UK.
The Course Lecturer will again be John Watson.
This “Paper Appreciation Course” (formerly the NAPM Paper Appreciation Course) is unique in that it focuses on the benefits that paper and its attributes bring to the end-uses. So whilst we discuss the many elements of paper production, at each stage we describe what that part of the process does for the paper, for example, formation, opacity, thickness, stiffness, and so on.
We teach papermaking from the consumers’ angle.
The key objective of the course is not to produce budding papermakers, but for the delegates to better understand the attributes of the various grades of paper and what they bring to the end products.
This one-day course is ideal for employees who would not normally have the chance to visit a fully working paper mill but have worked within the paper merchanting, printing or associated industries for some time.
Some of the testimonials recently received for the course:
“This course gave me a different view on the paper I deal with into how it was made and the role it is destined for.”
“This course will help me focus more on the end-users requirements – customer first!”
“Fantastic. Enjoyed my day and will definitely recommend.”
“Really enjoyed the visit and would gladly come back!”
